Krasol® LBH 5000M is the newest addition to this company’s line of liquid polybutadiene additives. The mono-hydroxyl functional oligomer (monol) is reportedly a versatile additive that can support new applications for reactive polybutadienes. The monol can also be hydrogenated to produce a clear liquid (Krasol HLBH 5000M).
As a long-chain alcohol (C250), the monol can retain resistance to acids and bases in harsh environments, is hydrolytically stable, and is compatible with hydrocarbons. In composite systems, the oligomeric chain can promote surface modification and adhesion, as well as hydrophobicity or rheological modification. Krasol is compatible with many substrates, including polyolefins. Krasol monols can be further modified for use as macromonomers, surfactants, compatibilizers, fluid additives and other value applications.
